wasn't much of a fan of season 1. It just seems like the convoluted story lines papered over the cracks of a poorly written show.

What's healthy? I'd like to foster relationships that are good enough to grab a beer during Even Flow.

Meh... I don't have any expectations to meet any of you avatars in real life


I've been working out. ;)

Well, I don't plan on going to a Pearl Jam show for the rest of my life unless they change their rockin ways significantly. You're welcome to come out to my lake house in MO, though, Lenny. But you have to bring a boat.

i bet you don’t even have a lake house

Why do people think this show is poorly written? I never had any particular big gripes with it. Sometimes I wonder if I'm watching the same stuff as the rest of you.

There seem to be major plot holes.

Such as? Although I should say I am typically not really bothered by plot holes, especially in fantasy/sci-fi. Unless they're egregious, I'm watching the show to be wowed and told a story, not to have a airtight flowchart of plot that moves exactly from A to B to C with no errors. But I seem to be in the minority on that.

I haven't rewatched it, but for me it was the whole concept of the control room. It seemed like sometimes they had granular control over everything and sometimes they were asleep at the wheel. Tesla has better monitoring over it's cars than they did over their robots.

I think the main reason the writing is bad is because the show is inefficient and doesn’t explore anything interesting. Comparing it to Crichton’s movie makes this immediately clear, IMO. He accomplishes so much more and in far less time.

That's about where my opinion netted out too. I'll still watch this though.

I think the re-shoots during season 1 help explain the poor writing too. It sounded like they were substantial.

I find it very interesting, but AI-AI relationships and the increasing depictions of them fascinate me. One of the reasons I enjoyed the new Blade Runner as well.

I could not be less interested in the way Westworld and BR2049 “explored” this.

Spoiler: show
I think BR2049 is probably one of the ten worst movies I’ve ever seen in my life.

I know how you feel about it. I really am surprised to read people bagging on this show so much though. I thought it was pretty damn good.

I didn't dislike it. I just found myself totally apathetic to the characters.
